Ask Belle Roundup Vol. IV, No. Twenty-Two
May 19, 2014
My hair is really dry. My stylist suggested Ouidad Moisture Lock leave-in conditioner to keep it conditioned but it weighs down my hair. It’s also really expensive. Do you know of a better product?
Better is relative, but if you’re looking for cheaper and lighter, I have that covered. I like Infusium 23 Miracle Therapy leave-in spray. It detangles and moisturizes to keep my split-ends from taking over between trims. If you’d like an all natural product, I would also recommend KMS Moisture Therapy spray.
I am in a brainlock looking for nude/beige wedges for a bridesmaid outfit for a friend’s wedding. All the pairs I can find either look really trashy, flashy or too casual. Any suggestions?
Banana Republic has a good, basic pair of nude wedges, which are 40%-off today with code BRMONDAY. If you’re looking for something with a lower heel, try this wedge from Trotters or this peep toe J. Renee wedge. Or if you want to spend a bit more, I loved these Butter wedge shoes.
Prefer a sandal? I like these Via Spiga wedges.
If you don’t like the idea of nude shoes, you can do a metallic or snakeskin. Unless, of course, the bride has requested otherwise.
Can you help me find a dress that is navy with white stripes? Short sleeve or 3/4 sleeve is what I’m looking for. I’m looking for something that costs less than $75.
Love your style! Emme
The first one I found that I love is this Hayden dress with a short sleeve, slight drape and detailed waist. Super cute. J.Crew also has this stripe dress with a slightly colorblock feel. This fit and flare Old Navy dress is also nice, and speaking of Old Navy, I own this Rugby stripe dress in dark blue with an aqua accent stripe. Limited sizes are left, but it’s one of my favorite dresses right now.
